He made a big statement in the 2019/20 season, where he won the Ligue 1 player of the month award for August and helped the club finish 3rd on the league table. He replicated his form in the subsequent season and his impressive performances didn't go unnoticed, but rather trashed the floodgates wide and from within were torrents of interest from European top clubs including Real Madrid. 

The 18 year old didn't blink twice when the chance to join Real Madrid eventually popped up, and revealed after the move that, it was a dream come true joining the Spanish giants. Camavinga will now join his compatriots, Ferland Mendy and Karim Benzema at the club and it is anticipated the duo will assist him get to get acclimatized with his new environment. Camavinga could also be joined by one of his close friends, Kylian Mbappe Lottin, who has rejected all contract extension advances from Paris Saint-Germain, next season.
